of the entire region. syria, and the disorder spills across the neighborhood. joining us again, and fbi supervisory agent. you see that as late? >> what is happening in syria, you have to look at it from a few different perspectives. first you have the syrian people who want freedom from bashar al-assad's regime. then you have regional conflict that is going on. this is between iran and turkey. turkey is supporting the iranian people and iran is supporting the regime. you also have to look at it on a different level. where you have russia and china also involved on global levels with the syrian conflict. it is becoming a war of shadows and a war of different phones. the problem with that is that syria is a multicultural society. you have the christians and shiites and sunnis so if a civil war took place in syria, with all of these entities fighting with each other, that is still into the entire region. you will see it in lebanon and we will see an indication that the syrian conflict is still into lebanon. also, there is about 20 million involved in the clan and that's that. jenna: this

years during this war the syrian air force has controlled the skies over syria. they have pounded rebel positions, killing civilians and rebel fighters. throughout the course of this nearly two-year long conflict. it is one of the key reasons the assad regime is still in power. something seems to be changing in syria because the last 24 hours rebels shot down two syrian aircraft. one hell copper and one jet plane. now in the past the rebels have been able to shoot down helicopters but this is the first time they shot down a jet plane and there are reports rebels have access to some type of new anti-aircraft weapon. possibly shoulder to air missile. it is not clear where they got it from or how many they have. some speculation may be that they confiscated it from the syrian military when they took over syrian bases in northern syria. it is also possible that outside countries like qatar or turkey actually supplied these weapons to the syrian rebels especially since it takes some training and some practice to fire a missile and take a plane out of the air. there is some speculation this i

these last few years we're disengaging and pulling back from the role. jamie: what about syria, what about libya? what else does the president have facing him now on his plate? who do you want to see in the positions of secretary of state, department of defense and the cia? >> well in reference to libya, i mean it's tragic. we've been handed a major defeat there. a u.s. diplomatic post burned to the ground and ambassador tragically killed with three others and the u.s. clandestine intelligence space forced to evacuate. i don't know what the precedent for that is. i don't have one myself. and al qaeda certainly is benefiting from that as is the radical islamic movement. that is why you see al qaeda in syria. they're trying to influence that outcome, particularly in a post-assad era, so they have some influence. we have got to stay involved. i'm not talking about military involvement. i'm talking about diplomatic involvement. i'm talking about arming those moderates who are fighting to depose assad in syria. i'm talking about helping to train the libyan security forces which we should have d

. the problem with that is that syria is a multicultural society. you have the christians and shiites and sunnis so if a civil war took place in syria, with all of these entities fighting with each other, that is still into the entire region. you will see it in lebanon and we will see an indication that the syrian conflict is still into lebanon. also, there is about 20 million involved in the clan and that's that. jenna: this has been going back for centuries. how we engage with that? remapped welcome of, the problem that has been happening today in syria, there is no one to fill the vacuum of bashar al-assad's falling. the new coalition of the opposition -- the syrian opposition, they get together and they elected a leader. that leadership is not a leadership that has been outside syria for 20 years. it is for people who actually were in syria until recently. jenna: there are questions about that leadership and whether it is genuine or whether or not it is the second in command, the muslim brotherhood member is someone that should be looked at again. thomas friedman makes this argument today th

: a new report that iran is sending weapons and supplies to help the regime in syria. iraq is allowing iran to fly the convoys through the air space. leland vittert joins us live in jerusalem. how is this working? >> reporter: essentially what is going on here, general ace the iranians want some way to get weapons, ammunition and men over to the syrian regime. they can't fly north through turkey, they are flying through iraq that is despite the u.s. asking iraq to close down air space to these kinds of flights. this is video that's been confirmed to fox news by western intelligence sources showing iranian revolutionary guard troops getting off of cargo troops that view via iraqi air space inside syria to join the fight. it's no secret that iran is trying very hard to help president bashar al-assad. it's most interesting how they are getting increasingly sneaky about how they are getting him his weapons and ammunition and those kinds of things. the issue here is that over the past couple of months the u.s. put a lot of pressure on iraq to shut the flights down. what they are doing now i

fears that israel, by far our closest ally in the middle east could be drawn into syria's civil war. now that its tanks struck a syrian artillery launcher after a stray mortar shell flew into the golan heights. the fighting from syria reaching turkey for the second straight day. leland vittert is live in jerusalem with the latest. leland? >> reporter: rick, right now the big concern in terms of the civil war is just how close the syrians civil war is getting to its borders, namely with turkey and also here with israel. the airstrikes we have watched over the past couple of days along the turkish border were shots from turkey, meaning that is how close the planes were and the turks for their part have promised to shoot down any syrian air force jet that ends up inside turkey airspace. that of course could have a whole cascading range of effects going down. the air force for the syrian government is really the trump card as they have been able to act with impunity. although rebels have gotten better organized the past couple weeks they're nowhere near the level, france, britain or the unit

northern africa, the middle east. al-qaida in iraq, in syria. i mean they there are real challenges out there, other american interests, consulates, diplomatic facilities are potentially under threat. jon: the president has said many times that al-qaida leadership has been decimated and is on the run. >> is on its heels? i don't agree with that assessment. any kind of come place sans see on our part regarding al-qaida is a big miss take. what he was focusing on here was the 9/11 crowd, the 9/11 al-qaida group. the ones that fled afghanistan into pakistan, osama bin laden. that was that crowd. you've seen testimony and reports that al-qaida in iraq has doubled in numbers, up to about 2500, they are all over syria. you've got bocohoram in africa. you've got al shabaab. we are still under threat. and the idea we should not become complacent about this at all. jon: and do you worry that with three hearings getting underway that some of the impact of all of this might be somehow dil diluted? would it be better to get one central clearinghouse and get it all out there. >> if i was a member of

sending missile parts to syria. we've talked about the relationship between north korea and the middle east before. this is the first we've heard of this and this happened a couple of months ago. what do you make of it, what is the involvement we need to watch. >> this is a continuation of a trend because the north koreans have been not only selling missiles but nuclear reactors. the reactor destroyed in 2007, that was a north korean reactor. iran paid for it. the united states has not been paying enough attention to north korean proliferation. jenna: there is so much to watch, gordon how do you prioritize. >> that is the real problem, the crises is come one right after the other. it will be very difficult for the administration or even a bunch of countries to be able to deal with this because there is too much happening all at once. jenna: it certainly feels that way. you give us a lot of thins to think about. it's good to have you on set. thank you. appreciate it very much. jon: a couple of icons of the american lunch box could be no more. we might be seeing the last of the twinninge
